Have you guys used full keyboards that small? I have one about that size that's USB with the regular non-chiclet, and I'm not really sure I like typing on it. It's very cramped.

Joy Factory has cases for the iPad Mini too.
Especially the SmartSuit Mini looks good!

I have asked to get this modified a bit to fit the Smart Cover and a few other things.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/11315504...ni-sleeve-ipad

Anyone know how big the Apple is on the Mini? I want to get a rainbow logo.

Looking for a thin clear backing to top it off.

That case looks huge and that brown is ugly. If you want to showcase your products pick the black one at least.

The last case you've posted actually shows an Android device btw.

Otterbox announced the Defender for the iPad Mini:
Thumb resize.

Kavaj has announced two genuine leather cases (and offers a 15% discount on both with the code YX95HGH3 for the introduction): The "Berlin"
Thumb resize.Thumb resize.
and the "London":
Thumb resize.Thumb resize.

i really like those kavaj cases

From the limited pics of the Micro Folio it does look like it could be a nice case, but the price seems high for something like this. It seems like something I am looking for, but I am going to need to see more and possibly find a good deal on it.

I just bought this i-Blason which has the smart function. you can get it for $10 shipped if you buy direct from i-Blason on amazon but I selected the prime eligible one which was $15. I hated to pay the extra $5 but its nice having peace of mind if it needs returned and I know I will receive it oct.31st with the 2 day shipping. It looks nice and compact to me, what do you all think?

Please do report back. I like this also. I was wondering how these people got the specs to produce covers before the ipad was even announced.

was it going to have two holes in the back or one, etc.

I like the idea of not paying $45 for a case. I do like this. I'm going to decide, i hope, this evening.

Full Body Skin

For anyone interested in a full body skin similar to BSE, Zagg, Wrapsol, etc. should check out this Skinomi skin. They are a lesser known option, but have been around for awhile and have skins for many other devices. The reason I point this one out is because it's currently listed for only $.99 + $2.95 s/h. I have used them a few times before and have found their quality better than Zagg and on par with BSE.

Just bought the Kavaj "Berlin" in black, thanks for the discount code.

I haven't owned an iPad before so I don't know if I should get a screen protector for it or not.

Any advice please?

Quick update!!! It seems there is another mfr. of the case above I bought. There is now a MOKO brand of the same case on amazon for $6.96 shipped. I went ahead and bought it also. I like the elastic strap that is added to it. It shows I wont receive it until nov 5-7th though so if you want it quick the iBlason is still your best bet since mine shows I will receive it on the 31st.

4.49 discount so 25.41 in total. I was already looking at it prior to seeing this thread, the discount code made it a no brainer for me in the end.

Thank you I will not bother with a protector, it must feel better without one anyway. Just hoping the back doesn't scuff too much now.

do you mean the back of the leather?

I don't know uro so I can't tell how good that is. But what's more important is that you like it. You don't mind waiting. Husband told me to get something until I get the one I want.

That's what I've done too, bought a cheap one for now until the Kavaj case is in stock.

What I meant was the back of the mini. I'm sure somehow I'll manage to scuff it even with a case I imagine they scuff easily..

No Ann, you'll be fine. When they are in their cases, they don't scratch. I had a 1st gen Ipad and loved it. I'm coming back home after trying, Nook,Kindle Fire and Galaxy tablet. I'm so excited. it will be a long 2 weeks.

BTE; YOU don't need a scratch shield. They are more hassle then love. The air bubbles you get are just annoying. Just keep your cloth and wipe it down.

Speck Cases

Here's a strange one... Speck still does not have an iPad mini cases listed on their site (http://www.speckproducts.com/ipad-mini). However, Amazon claims to have the Speck Fit Folio available to order right now on their website for $35. http://www.amazon.com/Speck-Products-FitFolio-Leather-SPK-A1512/dp/B009UQ2L7U/ref=br_lf_m_1000844061_1_13_ttl?ie=UTF8&s=pc&pf_rd_p=1408874522&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_i=1000844061&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0YXP1AWJ504HBNB3YAS0

I just ordered it. I'll see when it gets here I guess. I ordered a 32gb black/slate mini and I'm concerned about scratches on the back as is a problem on the iPhone 5. Looks like this Speck case doesn't completely cover the back, but the sides look pretty well protected and it kind of snaps in with a polycarbonate shell. Not sure if I'd completely trust that either, but I'll give it a shot.

Thanks for the link jedolley!

If this is anything like the FitFolio for the regular iPad then the back is completely covered until you use it as a stand.
